This is the first in a series of three dealing with the legendary Hamtramck Disneyland art installation created by Dmytro Szylak, a Ukrainian immigrant who moved to Hamtramck following WWII in 1949. This installation is at times both the most well-known and least-known instances of public art in Hamtramck, Michigan. People come from all over the world to see it, but even many of the city's residents themselves are unaware of it's existance. From my conversations with Dmytro I learned that he began construction of this in 1990 at the ripe age of 70. It's worth noting that he is now eighty-six and still going! I spent a good part of an evening getting to know Dmytro while shooting. This first pano is a portrait of Dmytro in his backyard which is overgrown with 'Disneyland.'
